    I was at work at Furman during the storms and we got hammered by them.

    The next dinner is this Wednesday. Los Portales Mexican restaurant in Greer.

    So I decided to take the Givi windshield off the PCX. It is nice in the cold but basically blocks all the air flow. I can smoke a cigar behind it going down the road.:bubba

    I won a factory shield on EBay for $1.00 and figured I would give it a try.

    It is a completely different riding experience. Lots of air and nothing in front of me. I think I will quickly get used to it over the hot summer.

    :lol3 Sorry about the tornado that hit your garage :imaposer

    Yeah, the OEM shield looks better even though that Givi is nice when the temp drops.

    That Givi looks sweet for colder weather riding. Looks like you are well protected.
    The factory windscreen makes it look completely different. I know it rides different.
    I didn't realize you had a PCX too. For some reason, I was thinking the Burg was your only scoot.

    I might make the meet-up. Not sure right now what will be going on around here. Probably ride the Reflex. Working on the Ninja 250 today. Carb issues.

    The original shield looks racy compared to the Givi. :thumb

    Yep, I think I am going to enjoy the stock screen in the hot weather.

    What time is the meet-up happening? I might be bringing my son too. He has expressed some interest.

    It looks like I am not oging to make it tonight. Worked a little late and the weather isn't great either.
    Hope I can make it one of these days soon.
